Calcutta: Bengal may have reached the quarter final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, but the batting conundrums just don’t seem to end.
The batsmen survived a scare even in pursuit of a double-digit total in their last zonal leg match against Assam, at the Eden, on Friday.
Had it not been for Manoj Tiwary’s assured presence, the scare could well have turned into another severe jolt, given Bengal’s woeful batting form in the tournament.
“I feel our batsmen first need to have a fair idea of their own game and do their homework on the conditions on offer.
“Next, they should look to occupy the crease for a considerable amount of time before going for the shots.
“Thereafter, it’s about shot-selection. Treating the ball according to its merit is one of the most important aspects of the sport. If you are to deliver at this level, you must rise up to the challenges,” Tiwary said, after hitting a superb unbeaten 61.
